MPBL: Straight from D-League Finals, Banal leads Bacoor to victory

Right from Game 2 of the Finals of the 2018 PBA D-League Foundation Cup last Tuesday afternoon, Gab Banal headed for the Strike Gymnasium in Bacoor, Cavite. There, he stayed hot to shoot the Strikers over very game visitors Laguna, 91-86, for their fourth straight win after a 0-2 start in the 2018 Maharlika Pilipinas Anta-Datu Cup. Banal posted a 25-point, 12-rebound double-double to go along with six assists. This, just hours after tallying 33 points built on 7-of-8 shooting from threes while also collecting six rebounds and four assists in Go for Gold’s 105-81 Game 2 victory versus Che’Lu Bar and Grill in the best-of-five Finals of PBA D-League. The versatile forward had much help from fellow Strikers Leo De Vera who pounded in 17 points and 12 rebounds and Mark Montuano who scored 20 markers of his own. For the Heroes, Denok Miranda topped the scoring column with 29 points. Unable to douse cold water on Banal, though, they fell for the third time in a row and fell to a 2-4 record. In the day’s other game, Davao Occidental got the better of Cebu, 71-64. Billy Ray Robles showed the way for the now 3-3 Tigers with 14 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals. Patrick Cabahug paced the Sharks with 14 points which proved to be insufficient in preventing their drop to 1-5. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Green Spikers score upset win over Bulldogs

De La Salle University weathered Bryan Bagunas' scorching scoring display to complete a morale-boosting upset win over National University in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference. The Green Spikers handed the Bulldogs their first loss that snapped NU's five-game romp with a four-set, 27-25, 27-25, 17-25, 25-17, victory Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The trio of Cris Dumago, Geraint Bacon and John David Inocentes led the way for the Taft-based squad's second win in six games that kept DLSU in contention for a Final Four berth. Dumago pounded 15 attacks in his 17-point performance while adding 20 excellent receptions and four digs for the Green Spikers, who snagged the win despite allowing Bagunas to explode with 30 points. Bacon had 15 markers while Inocentes contributed 11 points for DLSU. NU, which gave away 33 points off errors, slid to 5-1 record. Meanwhile, Far Eastern University added more woes to an already eliminated Arellano University, 22-25, 25-20, 25-16, 25-20, while University of the Philippines made short work of College of St. Benilde, 25-21, 25-20, 25-23. The Tamaraws evened their record to 3-3 with four players scoring in double figures led by JP Bugaoan’s 18 points. Mark Calado added 13 while skipper Redijohn Paler and Peter Quie added 11 each for FEU, which sent the Chiefs reeling to their sixth straight defeat. John Millete spearheaded the Fighting Maroons with 17 points while Jerry San Pedro had 10 as UP tie Adamson University at 4-2 card.

PVL: UP sweeps CSB in first meeting with former coach

University of the Philippines survived a tough challenge against a very game College of St. Benilde as the Lady Maroons got back on the winning track Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference.

NCAA: JJ Domingo s breakout performance gives CSB sigh of relief

"Ooh! Sa wakas, nabuhay ka rin!" That's how CSB Blazers coach TY Tang opened the post-game press conference as his longest-tenured player JJ Domingo finally showed up for the first time this season. Domingo, who is playing in his fourth season with the squad, had himself a breakout game of 22 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal, which helped steer CSB to their third win of the season. For Tang, it's been a long time coming for his most veteran player, who is averaging 2.2 markers in 23.5 minutes for the season. "JJ finally is back. We've been patient, even for this day to come. We know what JJ can do. It's just a matter of getting his confidence back and being able to contribute in a way we know he can," the second-year coach said.  The coach also added that he hopes that the game will a sign of greater things to come. As for the guard, his coaches' incessant desire to keep him going was the key for the breakout, and thanks them for their efforts. "Marami akong games na wala ako masiyadong na-cocontribute. Tapos, yun lang talaga, si coach nag-chchallenge sa akin everyday. Pag wala yung laro ko, masama, walang nangyayari. Tuloy-tuloy na yun. So, ang gusto lang nila coach sa akin, yung decision-making ko maging tama." Another inspiration for the senior is his infant son, who watched the game along with his girlfriend. Domingo kissed his son after the game, a reminder to keep his game going. "Kailangan sa bawat laro ko may parang mapatunayan ko sa anak ko na, kaya ko rin maglaro, ganoon. Sila inspirasyon ko paggising ko, ganoon. Naging emotional talaga ako pag nakikita ko yung baby ko ganoon. So parang nachchallenge ako, every game." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

NCAA: Jielo Razon rescues Perps from upset-conscious JRU

University of Perpetual Help has been the most surprising squad in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament – and much of it is because of its backcourt. Jielo Razon and Edgar Charcos yet again showed their worth on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, getting together in the endgame to shoot the Altas over Jose Rizal University, 78-72. Razon dropped back-to-back bombs set up by Charcos that proved to be the game-winning baskets in their second consecutive victory and fourth overall in six games. “Wala pa kaming easy win, but a win is a win,” head coach Frankie Lim said post-game. Indeed, the rookie guard showed no fear in taking and making two triples inside the last two minutes. Still, it was AJ Coronel who hit his own trey that tied the tally again for Perps after they were at the receiving end of a rally from their opponents. Down by double-digits early in the final frame, Jed Mendoza carried the Heavy Bombers back into the game. In fact, he scored the first seven points in the 9-0 run that snatched away the advantage in favor of his squad, 72-69. Off a timeout, though, Coronel rose and launched a three that found the bottom of the net and knotted the score at 72-all. From there, the Perpetual defense stood strong and allowed no more makes just as Razon and Charcos got together. Razon finished with 18 points, six rebounds, and five assists while Charcos ended with 25 markers, nine boards, and five dimes for the Altas who now have a share of third place. On the other hand, JRU remained winless in seven games despite the best efforts of Mendoza who wound up with 21 points. BOX SCORES PERPETUAL 78 – Charcos 25, Razon 18, Coronel 16, Eze 7, Aurin 5, Peralta 5, Mangalino 2, Pasia 0, Cuevas 0, Sese 0, Tamayo 0 JRU 72 – Mendoza 21, Bordon 10, Silvarez 9, Estrella 8, Padua 6, Mallari 5, Dela Virgen 5, Esguerra 4, Santos 2, Aguilar 0, Miranda 0 QUARTER SCORES: 18-13, 34-30, 55-46, 78-72 —— Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA: Frankie Lim s green light gives Jielo Razon confidence in the clutch

Even as a rookie, Jielo Razon has shown that he can steady the ship. Tied at 72 with under two minutes to go, Razon took matters into his own hands and drilled two straight triples for the Perpetual Altas to keep the upset-conscious JRU Heavy Bombers at bay and got the 78-72 win at the Filoil Flying V Centre.  Edgar Charcos, NO! Jielo Razon, YES! THREE! #NCAASeason94 #GalingNCAA pic.twitter.com/oefWtv3PNO — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) August 14, 2018 Jielo Razon ANOTHER triple. Cold-blooded. #NCAASeason94 #GalingNCAA pic.twitter.com/uP9LebO86N — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) August 14, 2018 Those shots are bound to stick with his name for the rest of his collegiate career, all thanks to a confidence booster from none other than head coach Frankie Lim.   "Si coach rin ang nagbibigay ng kumpiyansa, hindi lang sa akin, kundi sa lahat. Lahat naman po kami ready. Alam po namin nira-run namin. Siguro nangyari na yun. Sabi rin ni coach yun, kung open, wala nang hesitate-hesitate," the homegrown Razon said after the game. Lim previously gave praise to his poised rookie as he has made the most of set plays. "Great shots, great shots. Our offense keeps our shooters outside opportunities to take open shots. Nasa players lang on how they want to use it. Big shot from a rookie. He's been playing well for the past games." With the Altas rising to 4-2, Lim acknowledges that the gritty team's wins have never come easy. "Pero ano, a win is a win. Something remarkable happened in the second half. We had like just two turnovers. And I think we're beginning to take care of the ball. Mas maraming nangyayari."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

Following the lead of breakout player John Amores, the Light Bombers clobbered University of Perpetual Help in the earlygoing before holding on for a well-earned 84-72 win on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Amores tallied 18 points, seven rebounds, and three assists to show the Kalentong-based ballers the way to back-to-back wins – their first in the tournament. Now on a win run, JRU is just right behind powerhouses College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills, Mapua High School, Arellano High School, and San Beda High School in the standings. However, it was Marwin Dionisio who actually got the Light Bombers to a strong start by dropping all but two of his 10 points in the first quarter. He also totalled 12 rebounds just for good measure. Of course, the Junior Altas kept coming, but Amores and Gab Baluyut just did enough to keep them at bay. With the upset loss, Perps dropped to a  tie for third at 4-2. Main man Joshua Gallano struggled with just four points and three rebounds. Meanwhile, CSB-LSGH retained its top spot in the standings by dropping a 32-point hammer on Emilio Aguinaldo College, 103-71. Inand Fornilos turned in his best game of the season with a 26-point, 14-rebound double-double while Joshua David and RC Calimag each chipped in 12 markers for the now 6-1 Junior Blazers. Joel Cagulangan was relatively quiet once more, but was still felt everywhere with his 10 points, seven assists, five rebounds, and three steals. For the 1-6 Brigadiers, JR Ilustrisimo showed the way with 14 points and seven rebounds.
